Andrew Marvell (1621-1678), Poet and politician; MP for several constituencies

Sitter associated with 16 portraits
The poet Marvell was a friend of Milton and his assistant as Latin Secretary to the Council, and he became effectively Cromwell's poet laureate during the Protectorate. The Horatian Ode upon Cromwell's Return from Ireland (1650) is regarded as his greatest political poem, but he is best known for works such as To his Coy Mistress and The Garden. After the Restoration he turned to writing bitter satires.
